Consumer Advocacy handles complaints and questions from Oregon consumers who are experiencing difficulties with entities regulated by the division. Advocates use their extensive industry knowledge to analyze and resolve complex issues. Consumers sometimes bring issues that are outside of DFR regulation; Consumer Advocacy is often able to refer them to the appropriate regulator.
In 2022 the team handled 4.392 complaints, 13,835 phone calls and e-mails. $8,633,345 in benefits was recovered* for Oregon consumers.
Consumer Advocacy focuses on getting results for individual consumers but also serves as the front line for observing and documenting industry behavior. If the advocate determines there is a violation of the law or questionable business practice, the complaint file is referred to Market Regulation, Investigations, or Enforcement.
